Clean and Tidy ★★★★

This is our 3rd time that we have stayed here and it did not disappoint. Friendly owners and nothing was a problem. The room was great, clean tidy with everything that you required was here. The price was pretty good as well. Will definitely stay here again.

Fantastic stay – highly recommended! Dog friendly!  ★★★★★

We stayed here with my 80 year old nan, her 85 year old sister and two dogs. The family cabin was spacious clean and warm, the beds were comfortable too. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly- great customer service! The location is great, only a short walk to town. The cabin itself is wooden and kept us warm all night. We will definitely be back- it’s hard to find dog friendly accommodation, especially this good!
Happy Return ★★★★★
Really pleased to return to this wee gem tucked away in a quiet corner of the village. Stacey continues to give a warm and helpful welcome. Handy for woodland walks and 5 mins to village centre and pools. Excellent value and still a great standard of cleanliness. All you need for a happy stay, wekas included…

9.0  Had a great stay

Allowed us to have the dog and check out a little later. Lovely staff, perfect location. Highly recommend.

8.0 A little hideaway

I had my own little studio with all the things I needed, the bed was comfortable, the shower was good, the view from the studio was quite nice. It was a nice easy walk down to the centre of town to go to the baths, cafe, shopping etc. and the views are amazing!
